Was he vaccinated?
July 29, 2021 3:08 pm

It’s a mitzvah today to get vaccinated and to encourage others to do so

Why no ivermectine
July 29, 2021 3:38 pm

Why wasn’t he given ivermectine or the Zelenko protocol???

Because they dont work.

The RBSO blessed us with vacccines that reduce severity of illness.

I personally know people whose lives were saved by these treatments. High risk people. The key is to start within first 3-5 days.
The shots don’t work for preventing catching covid or getting severely sick from it, as now recorded in Israel and UK

Were you involved in medical care? Do you know at which point in his illness he was hospitalized? Do you know his sats?

Can you explain how ivermectin works against Covid ?

Can you explain how HCQ works against Covid.

He was hospitalized in a great Israeli hospital – do you really not think they they tried everything they could to save his life????

So sad!

So you want them to cover up the fact that he wasn’t vaccinated and died???

What about the truth. If even one person reads this story and gets the vaxx many lives can be preserved.

Totally worth the truthful reporting – even if the truth upsets your delicate ego and questionable relationship with reality.

Not all

If we can prevent the same thing from happening to other young fathers and prevent more children from becoming Yesomim R”L then we have the obligation to do so!

Ivermectin etc even according the the anti vaxers most liberal studies is only a hypothisis and at best only 50 percent effective against serious illness. Vaccine is 80 percent effective against serious illness even for delta variant.

Vaccine not available for everyone

People with autoimmune issues or immunocompromised might not be able to benefit from the vaccine so we still need options available for those people

Which is why everyone else who DON’T have rare autoimmune issues should all get vaccinated. Not rocket science. Wake up.

Unfortunately

Many people won’t. Some because they bought into crazy conspiracies. Some simply because they can’t understand how any vaccine can be safe after just a year of testing when every other vaccine had at least 4 years of testing. And of course all the kids and people from all over the world who don’t even have access to the vaccine. So we’ll need every treatment available even if the effect is minimal.

The vaccine doesnt prevent covid but makes a milder case. 60% of israeli cases in hospital were vaccinated. Now those over 60 are getting 3rd dose of vaccine

You are so lucky that your husband survived.

But how do you know it was the HCQ? Really – how do you know? Maybe he had mild case? Maybe he was turning the corner when he started his treatment?

Your unsubstantiated statement – your anecdotal evidence is dangerous misinformation. You might have good intentions but you lack some facts

Why isn’t natural immunity discussed?
July 30, 2021 2:01 am

This is what appears to be the case from emerging data: People who already were ill with covid appear to be at least AS protected as those who did not have covid and are vaccinated. The long term antibody effect has been seen in the t-cells / bone marrow tests (while the regular antibody test will not show the long term effect). It seems that those who already had covid are immune and are Not more protected by getting the vaccine. Therefore, it’s likely that if you had covid you do not need the vaccine. Many millions of people fall… Read more »

The answer is that you’re not a doctor or a medical expert, and the doctors all say that even people who were previously infected should get vaccinated.

How is this relevent to the deceased – he didn’t have natural immunity.

So what’s your point?

Also writing T cells doesn’t make you an expert. And complaining that you don’t see something in the news is lame.

A few important points: 1. A 38 year old father of 5 is dead. His death most likely could have been avoided with simple vaccination. 2. Science and experts matter – not your uneducated opinions/so called research / warped political views. 3. A true rabbinic authority would make a ruling that is all of OUR HALACHIC obligation to ourselves AND our community (incl our children) to preserve life and get vaccine. 4. The downright bizzarre ivermectin pushers??? Ivermectin is a pharma developed drug for parasites – there are no studies of safety for its long term use NOR its effectiveness… Read more »
